    Yep, definite hat doff to Minipips there!

    Just been doing the calculations, 2571m / 8435ft to go for me and three days to do it. Won’t be a problem, I’m just wondering if I should attempt the slightly daft option of doing it all in one go…

    Did a much extended commute last night, good mix of road & off-road on the CX. Off-road is certainly easier to get the height gain in! Unfortunately, my CX is now shagged beyond belief so on-road for me for the rest of this week.

    Think I had some dodgy altitude reading on my last ride 2000m in 50 km. Probably should have been 800m. Not sure how to fix it.

    click on the correct elevation thing below the number.

    the weather in melbourne is making it annoying. rain two days in a row! rain!

    Can’t see that. Is that only available if uploaded from a garmin?

    Yep, I’m all done now as well.
    7460m total climbed so a bit over the 7235m required. That last ride nearly did me in though, the first 20 miles were just brutal. Kind of settled into it a bit after that.
    And I can have tomorrow off!

    It still doesn’t alter that fact that I got beaten to the end by an 8-year old though…

    Well done Minipips!

    nice one guys, I remember last year – I cooked Paella and got pissed before pushing on for the last 3000m, this year the weather has left me with 5000 to catch up so no chance

    Done. Literally. Very tired legs for the last 1400m today. I think a 350 mile week deserves some easy recovery rides!

    Well done everyone, I’ve only managed 52% so far (one last push tomorrow) but the chemotherapy, 7 weeks of radiotherapy and two stone weight loss I went through in the spring, is all the excuse I need.
    I’m just glad to be back out riding.

    Good effort Dibbs, we’ve a mate who’s in a similar position to you. He’s recovering too though.

    I ended up just shy of 20,000m in the end, might just about stay in the top 50 with that.

    Luckily this co-incided with 2 weeks riding in the Alps, so i’ve smashed this one 🙂

    Safe to say, i’m having a bit of a break on the bike now…

    Finished it on sunday, legs felt shot at the end but pleased to have finished it.

    Just one question, is how do you claim your badge?
